My love of shortwave began with an old Philco radio at the age of ten. A couple of years later I earned my Novice license and was issued WN5SAP in New Orleans, LA. After high school I joined the Air Force and was a MARS operator for over six years.

Joining corporate life for major manufacturers around the country, and later owning four businesses in New Orleans, I was out of radio for 32 years. After retiring at the age of 49 in 2000, I decided to get my Ham license back. Morse Code was never a problem for me, in two weeks I was back up to speed. I love CW, always will. My FISTS # is 11731 and my SKCC # is 287.

The day after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in 2005, I relayed a message sent from FEMA to the Mayor of New Orleans – Ray Nagin. The communication was a very important message from President George W. Bush. Since then, I have twelve TV news stories (all stored on DVD), and numerous newspaper articles that outline some of the moments I have had with Ham Radio. Also on Ham Nation Episode 97 with a 30 Meter Mobile Beacon and how I helped Bob Heil put a mobile in his SUV on our trip to Dayton 2013. Also Ham Nation Episode 105.

I am also the planner and organizer of the Titanic Special Event Station WØS in Branson, MO. and W4S in Pigeon Forge, TN. This year's events will be on April 12th and 13th, 2014 for the 102nd Anniversary of the Titanic Disaster. See eHam.net "Calendar of Events April 2014 for more details. ALL QSL REQUEST FOR THE WØS WILL NEED A #10 STAMPED ENVELOPE (10.3X18 CM) FOR RETURN.

Also have a Six Meter Solar PoweredBeacon at 50.063.5 using a Alinco DX-70T at 8 watts to a Homebrew Six Meter HO Loop up 30 feet. This is the First Official Registered Beacon in the State of Missouri. The station can be viewed at www.k9mu.com. There is also a part-time 17 Meter Beacon at 18.110 using a Elecraft K-1 to a Delta Loop up 50 feet.

Yes, everyone calls me “SAP”, and I prefer that on and off the air. The FCC knew my sense of humor long ago. Everything I build or own has “SAP” incorporated in the name. My car is the “SAP”mobile. I co-built the “Sapallo” telegraph key while at Dayton 2007 with Al Gallo, WØERE, which was published in the FISTS and World Radio Magazines.

Currently I have a Tri-Ex 70 foot electric tower with a Mosley Pro 67B and Cushcraft 50S5 six meter beam on top. One sixty foot telephone pole and two 50 foot telephone poles are placed along the fence line for a 160 all coax Double Bazooka. A 60 foot Glen Martin tower with a Solar Powered Electric Hazer holds my homebrew full size Three Element 30 Meter Monster Beam, I call my “Trizilla.” The reflector element is 48.5 feet long and the antenna is also mounted on the South Tower at W1AW. I also have a Fullwave 80 Meter Delta Loop hung vertical at 60 feet with a switching stub that turns the loop into a Two Wave Length Bi-Square on 40 Meters. Another Fullwave 80 Meter Horizontal Loop up 50 feet. Click to view the station at http://www.tparca.org/BellRingers/Roster/n0sap.htm

73 and 6146. “SAP”
